2020 NAB AFL Academy Squads Released

The AFL has announced the 2020 Academy Squads, with eleven players from AFL NSW/ACT selected.

The recently expanded NAB AFL Academy program will see 150 players across each state and territory take part in high performance camps focusing on players on and off-field education, with the Allies’ camp scheduled from Monday November 18 to Friday December 20.

AFL National Talent Pathways Manager Marcus Ashcroft said it is an exciting time for the country’s best young talent.

“The new approach to the national NAB AFL Academy, introduced for the first time in 2018, will again ensure more of our most talented players have access to AFL facilities, while receiving the best quality coaching, high performance and well-being services in the country,” he said.

“Importantly these players will spend more time in their home states, with year-round-first-class support that will enhance their opportunity to perform at an elite level.

“I congratulate all players who have been named in their NAB AFL Academy Squads and I look forward to watching their development over the next few years.”

The NAB AFL Academy Squad is open for the best Under 17 and Under 18 players and holds an incredible success rate at the draft with over 81 per cent of squad members going on to be drafted since its inception in 1997.
